UKAD to maintain high levels of testing safety measures following COVID-19 restriction changes

UKAD’s Head of Testing, Emma Price said: “Throughout the pandemic UKAD has continued to review its COVID-19 safety measures for its doping control procedures. In light of Government guidance and the easing of restrictions in recent months, we have reduced the amount of COVID-19 measures in place but have maintained some vital requirements, such as wearing PPE, to ensure that all involved in the doping control process, including athletes and Doping Control Personnel (DCP), are protected. With COVID-19 still present we want to ensure that everyone is kept as safe as possible. 

“Please take a look at the infographic below to see the key measures that are in place. The doping control processes will remain under review over the coming months.”
